China’s top media regulator has announced a boycott of what it calls ‘sissy idols’ as part of a crackdown on the entertainment industry. The eight-point plan, which calls for “further regulation of arts and entertainment shows and related personnel”, was released by the National Radio and Television Administration on its website on September 2, 2021. Authorities have been increasingly critical of the trend of what some refer to as ‘sissy men’, which includes pop idols who wear make-up or do not conform to ‘macho’ male stereotypes prevalent in traditional Chinese culture.
